Yet again the dedicated heritage and environmental volunteers of the Saron Graveyard Project have shown what hard work and determination can accomplish.
At last Saturday’s Volunteer Day held at Saron Graveyard, Troedyrhiw, despite the changeable weather, the following work was carried out:-
- Removal of six tree stumps. This was extremely hard physical work.
- Clearing loose masonry and soil from the base of the wall on the low side of the chapel ‘footprint’.
- Reinstating a section of a path to improve access to graves adjacent to the low side of the chapel ‘footprint’.
- Cutting a temporary channel to carry away rainwater from a downpipe which currently drains from a roof directly onto the ground potentially affecting the building, gravestones and path.
Many thanks to Sheila, Jake, Steve C., Simon, Andrew, David, Phil, Tony and Brian for their input and support.
